I have a project in VC++ 8 using only c++ methods and libraries. Now I need to port the source code to GCC on Linux (Open SUSE). I would like to know the steps to build the files here.
Details like where to copy the source code, how to compile and build the entire code, how to link external libraries and dlls, are requested to be included.

There's a couple of free IDE's for linux. I'd recomend two of them:

Codeblocks: http://www.codeblocks.org/

Anjuta: http://www.anjuta.org/

With them you can setup projects just like Visual Studio. If you need help installing them, tell us wich Linux distribution are you using.

If you have few source files you can do a makefile yourself. Here's a little tutorial:

Hope this help.

At work, some of the guys use Eclipse. That is free.

You could try KDevelop (it's part of the openSuSE distro already, as is Eclipse).
KDevelop have a nice tutotial which walks you through setup up the build environments, explains the source trees and helps you compile your first project.
